Since this is intended as a precursor to a series of PHP-Gtk articles, I’ll simply provide a quick cut and

Copy the following code into a file, in your home directory, named simple.php:

#!/usr/local/bin/php -q 


function quitApplication()




dl'php_gtk.so' ) || die( 'Unable to load php_gtk module! YOU BROKE ME!n' );

$window = &new GtkWindow;

$window->set_title("PHP does GTK");


$window->connect'delete_event''quitApplication' );

‘which php’ at the command prompt. Once that’s done, at the prompt type:
This should open a blank window. If so, you’re ready to move on. If not, back up and try again. As always,
if you run into a snag, you can find some help in our community
In the next article we’ll deal with creating a more likable interface using Glade. Until then…
I’d like to thank Steph Fox from the PHP-Gtk team for her help with clarifying some of the info contained
in this article and the ones to follow. Everyone say “HI STEPH!!” 🙂
